The Firewire Spitfire is a stalwart of the brands line-up, and just like its cousin the Dominator it has a very broad appeal. Talented surfers love its performance in mediocre waves, and for the average Joe or Jane the Spitfire can be sized up to offer an easy paddling and generously proportioned surfboard to advance their skills.

From the shaper
The Firewire Spitfire Surfboard is a fine tuned Dominator with a little more bite. Firewire’s marketing director Chuy Reyna loved his Dominator but wanted a little more performance and hold for better quality, steeper waves. So the Spitfire was born, the same easy paddling, flat rockered board but with a stepped down tail rail to give it the same hold/bite as a performance shortboard.

Timmy Reyes talks Spitfire
what we like
We have probably shot ourselves in the foot by stocking the Spitfire! Some of our stoked customers have told us that they no longer need both a performance shortboard and a hybrid in their quiver.
This surfboards ability to perform in anything from thigh-high mush to well overhead conditions is the key to its success. While the experienced ripper will undoubtedly need a board with more rocker, less volume and a thinner tail for good waves, for the average weekend warrior the Spitfire is a genuine “do it all” board they can ride at home and on their travels.
The board is available in both FST and Timbertek construction. FST or Future Shapes Technology is the more durable of the two, so perfect for a board that might spend a bit of time getting abused by baggage handlers! TimberTek looks amazing with its sustainably-grown timber deck skin and offers a slightly stiffer flex, so marginally faster under experienced feet.
Choosing your construction
Want to do your bit for the planet and you don’t mind investing in a quality boardbag for travel....go for the TimberTek Spitfire, it’s achingly beautiful. If you’re particularly hard on your boards and you’re planning lots of trips overseas go with the FST. Whatever you choose the Spitfire will be tougher than any regular PU shortboard you’ve owned.

So, I'm 6'7 at 108kg and bought the 6'6 Spitfire Helium at 45ltr volume. I'm an intermediate surfer with reasonable weekend worrier paddling power. Waves surfed were reef breaks from lazy to punchy. Board performed perfectly and is easy to paddle, light, durable (unless a long boarder rides into you), stable to take-off on and turns on a dime. The steeper the better but does well in most conditions.
If in doubt about the size, trust the gents at boardshop as they haven't missed a beat on any of my board purchases. Delivery was fast and efficient with thoughtful packing. They even packed my board into the surfboard sock and bag that I bought and then wrapped the whole thing for delivery. Fantastic :)
Thanks again and highly recommend boardshop.

Apart from that, the Spitfire is a great allrounder (more performance than the Dominator) and a true hybrid. If you need a performance orientated one board quiver from 2-6ish ft, look no further!

Have had no regrets! The board is surfing amazing and has looks to die for. Paddling isn't half as hard as I thought it would be and super responsive. In short a great advice and a great board.
Also had to return some items even though I live in the Netherlands the team from Boardshop arranged everything so it wasn't any trouble.
Will order in the future and ask for advice!

I got the 6'10 based on the fact that I surf 7'0 as my regular boards. This was a mistake on my part as the floatation on this thing is incredible. I'm 6'6 at 108kg, intermediate surfer and above average fitness(for those of you who use volume calculators) and surfed it in Indo for 3 week. Great board, wave count through the roof BUT I went to big on the size. I should have gone for the 6'6 as its similar in volume as my standard 7'0 but I doubted myself as it sounded to a drastic change. Zero pressure dings.
Anyway, board is great and had a blast so be brave as they say, drop a size or 2 from what you are used to when choosing a FireWire.
